Start planning now to hitch your colleagues in celebration of the primary International Science Center and Science Museum Day (ISCSMD) on November 10! The Gaofen-three satellite was developed by the China Academy of Space Technology (CAST) and Shanghai Academy of Spaceflight Technology (SAST), beneath steerage of China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CATC). The Government of India plans to arrange 15 new know-how centres and improve two current ones for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) by 2017, which can cater to the needs of nearby industries and work as cluster improvement centres for industries situated of their space. NCSM has undertaken the Science Centres/Cities initiatives in a phased manner depending on the supply of sources, mission handling capability of NCSM, and present level of science centre activities in a specific state. Over the following three years, ASTC and Biogen Idec Foundation will companion to deliver the World Biotech Tour to 12 chosen worldwide science centers for three-day science festivals centered on the theme of biotechnology.

Professor Karen Egiazarian of Tampere University of Technology in Finland has been named editor-in-chief of the Journal of Electronic Imaging (JEI) beginning 1 January 2016. Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is taking steps towards developing its own reusable rocket utilizing a Winged Reusable Launch Vehicle Technology Demonstrator (RLV-TD), whose tech demo is anticipated to be conducted in February 2016. Working with organizations across the state, it identifies and communicates emerging alternatives in science and technology and prepares and publishes analyses outlining the competitive position of North Carolina’s companies and research institutions in these areas.

Ms Nirmala Sitharaman, Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Commerce and Industry, has launched the Technology Acquisition and Development Fund (TADF) beneath the National Manufacturing Policy (NMP) to facilitate acquisition of Clean, Green and Energy Efficient Technologies, by Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises (MSMEs). The coverage ‘Vision S&T 2020′ would articulate the nation’s future in direction of self-reliance and technological independence within the twenty first century. It took innovative expertise and a collaboration between the Australian Synchrotron and the CSIRO to reveal the mysterious hidden lady in Degas’s famous painting.

InnoNano Research, a clear water expertise company, has raised US$ 18 million from NanoHoldings, a US-primarily based energy and water funding firm, which will likely be used to set up manufacturing facility, trendy analysis laboratory and know-how delivery offices across North America, Asia and Africa to make India an exporter of water applied sciences.

In 2014, the official title of the journal was modified to Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology. National Council of Science Museums (NCSM), an autonomous organisation under the Union Ministry of Culture, is engaged in the establishment of Science Centres across the nation. ASTC represents the field on these issues at nationwide and worldwide ranges, and provides material relevant to the local advocacy needs and interests of science facilities and museums in all places.
